Infoblox has announced the acquisition of SnapRoute. SnapRoute’s talent and technology add significant depth to Infoblox’s suite of offerings and will help the company to radically simplify networking and deliver groundbreaking services more quickly and efficiently.
SnapRoute’s cloud-native network OS together with Infoblox’s cloud-native network services platform promise to deliver a next level network experience.
As business environments continue to evolve as part of digitalisation efforts, they become more decentralised, and operate across multiple platforms and devices in a hybrid cloud architecture. Technology and service providers will need a new platform/architecture to deliver and manage network and security services at scale. Infoblox’s BloxOne platform is built around cloud-native architectural principles, enabling the delivery of cloud-managed secure network services at scale. With SnapRoute’s cloud-native OS, Infoblox will now be able to accelerate the development and delivery of additional network services on its platform.
With its BloxOne Threat Defense solution and recently released BloxOne DDI solution, Infoblox has already delivered DDI and security centric services built on the SASE architecture. According to the company, SnapRoute’s technology, IP and exceptional talent will accelerate Infoblox’s ability to expand the suite of SASE services offered on this cloud-native architecture.
“We recognise that the future is in the cloud, and to meet customer demands for flexibility, scalability, adaptability, enhanced security and speed, it will become increasingly important for network and security services to be cloud-native,” said Jesper Andersen, President and CEO, Infoblox. “We are thrilled to welcome the SnapRoute team as we work together to leverage their innovative technology and IP to rapidly expand the services we offer on our BloxOne platform.”
